Posted October 06, 2018 02:07:55 An IT worker is getting a federal government subsidy to help cover the cost of her family’s house.
An Ontario couple have been struggling to pay their rent for more than three years, and when the government changed the rules, they couldn’t qualify for a new house subsidy because they live in the wrong part of town.
“We’re just really trying to do everything we can, we’re just hoping that we can be helped by the government,” said Debbie and Scott Wozniak, of Richmond, Ont., who had a house-sharing agreement with Vermont and their four children.
Woznik said Vermont had to help pay the bills while they waited for a home. “
There’s no point going to another home, we just have to do what we have to.”
Woznik said Vermont had to help pay the bills while they waited for a home.
“They said we can only qualify for this if we move here in a month,” said Woznicki.
The couple said they have to keep working and hope they can find a new place to live. “
I don’t have the money to pay my rent, so we’re going to have to stay.”
The couple said they have to keep working and hope they can find a new place to live.
“Right now, I have to work,” said Scott.
“If we lose our job and we have a new job, then I’m out of a job.”
Vermont, a software firm, has been providing IT support to the Ontario government since 2002.
The Ontario government is offering the Wozns $8,000 to help them move out of their home and get a new home, and $12,000 a year in support to help with the rent and other bills.
Vermont told CBC News the Wuzns are being considered for a tax credit to help offset the cost.
“Our employees have been doing this for three years and we are all very grateful,” said Veron.
“You can get a job, but the house is going to be the thing that you need to live in.”
In January, the Wysans’ house was in the same building as a home for rent.
“My house was a bit of a mess, and my wife and I were still getting used to living in it,” said Todd Woziak, who is also a computer science major at McMaster University.
“We had a mortgage for six months. “
That house is a big part of us, and we’re trying to keep it clean.”
“We had a mortgage for six months.
We weren’t ready to move out,” said Doug Woziak, who said he and his wife have been living in their own home for three months.
“When you’re going through a divorce, it’s kind of hard to find a place to move.”
The Woznis have been paying $1,000 monthly in rent to Vermont for about a year, but are struggling to make ends meet and say the house doesn’t meet their needs.
“For us, that house is like a second home.
It’s something we can’t live without,” said Deb Wozik.
“And we’re not even sure if we can afford it.”
Scott Wuznicki said he can’t understand why Vermont is paying so much money to help him and his family move.
“The problem is, we don’t understand the program,” said Walker Wozin, who was born in Canada and moved to Canada when he was a toddler.
“How does it get that many subsidies, and so many people in Canada?”
Woznik said the couple can’t afford to pay the rent.
They’re asking Vermont to make payments, but it doesn’t seem to be doing much.
“Vermont is telling us that we have no choice but to pay rent, and I think that’s a pretty cruel thing to say,” said Wisnicki.
The Wuznks have filed a complaint with the federal government and the Ontario Ministry of Labour and Social Development.
“A few years ago, Vermont would have been happy to pay for the move,” said Tammy Woznic, who works as a human resources manager at Vermont.
“Now it seems to be something that they have a monopoly on.”
Veron said Vermona has asked the Wzins to provide documentation from Vermont that they are the owners of the home they’re trying move into.
“As a family, we want to keep living in this house,” said Dave Woznin, who runs Vermont’s IT support business.
“Vermont doesn’t want us here, they don’t like us here.”
Vermony’s spokesperson told CBC Toronto the company does not comment on individual situations.
“However, as with any such matter, Vermonic
